    NSRA NSRA Southern Swap Meet 2020

    SUNDAY 8th MARCH 2020
    The 31st NSRA Southern Swap Meet
    NORTH WEALD AIRFIELD, MERLIN WAY, EPPING, CM16 6HR


    Our rodding events calendar opens with our huge outdoor swapmeet and autojumble – from a window winder to a complete car, this is the place to buy and sell new, used and vintage auto parts and accessories!

    Following a successful first event, we are excited to be returning to North Weald Airfield in 2020. The entry issues faced in 2019 have been looked at and we are pleased to confirm that the public entry system is being completely revised to alleviate congestion problems.

    Public admission will now be via Gate B. You will be asked to park up and pay on foot at a kiosk when the event opens. NSRA official marshals will be directing you in the car parking area so please follow the instruction of all signage and marshals.

    Please keep an eye on the NSRA website for further details and updated information.


    PUBLIC ADMISSION - Entry is via GATE B and directed into public parking area
    The public gate will open at 9.30am. You will be filtered asked to park up and pay on foot at a kiosk – similar to the admission system at Arena Essex. Please prepare yourself with the correct cash and relevant membership card(s) to aid the NSRA crew.

    Catering vendors will be available before you enter and once you are in the main enclosure.

    Entry prices are £5.00 per NSRA member on production of a valid membership card (fridge magnets are not acceptable!), and £10.00 per non-NSRA member. Children 17 and under are free.

    As North Weald is an active airfield, there are strict rules on rubbish. Do not litter, please use the bins provided or take your rubbish home.


    TRADERS ADMISSION - Entry is via GATE B and directed up slip road to trade area
    Traders admission is from 7.30am on the morning of event.

    Pre-book your trade pitch to benefit from FAST TRACK ENTRY on the day. Booking forms are available for download at http://www.nsra.org.uk/southern-swapmeet/. On the day entries will be held back until the Fast Track entry has cleared.

    Cut-off date for trade pre-booking is Friday 29th February 2020.

    Vendors are to refrain from trading before 9.30am as this allows for uninterrupted set up. It is also fairer on buyers and vendors alike.

    Please also be aware that all trade pitches are in the open and overnight camping is not available.

    There is a no vehicle movement policy in the trade area before 1pm on the day of the event. When you are ready to leave, please come and find an NSRA official who will marshal you out of the trade area. Please also ensure that you have put all your rubbish in the bins provided or take it home with you.

    For all trade enquiries, please contact Andy Sawyer on nsra.trade@nsra.org.uk


    GENERAL

    • Dogs are allowed but must be kept on leads at all times.
    • Disabled parking will be available – please see a marshal on the day and they will direct you.
    • There will be an informal show ‘n’ shine area for pre-72 rods & customs, again, please follow signs or ask a marshal on the day.
    • Vendors are to refrain from trading before 9.30am as this allows for uninterrupted set up. It is also fairer on buyers and vendors alike.

    After a long journey to the Nationals last year, I was disappointed to find that there were no toilets in the carpark before the entrance gate.
    As a person of a certain age......will there be one at this event please? (After a long trip, every second counts!)
